I want to first say I kind of... borrowed this RP from another thread. This RP was made up by Ace Dillinger from the site http://agora.rpgclassics.com/showthread.php?p=554803#post554803. I only made a few tweaks to it though.

[b]The Midnight Array[/b]

[b]PLOT:[/b] The year is 2006. The place is Las Vegas, Nevada. During a magic show on the Vegas Strip in a club called Romero's, a mysterious gang off thugs called 'The Freakshow' assault the security, and take all valuables and cash from the patrons. The LVPD determines that The Freakshow is a group of offbeats and oddysses, both mentally and physically. Now The Freakshow is causing a citywide crime spree, making Las Vegas even more dangerous then normal. The leader of The Freakshow seems to be the one that commanded the thugs at the hold up. Victims say he looked like a vampire in every way, and the LVPD is looking into it. How much longer does the LVP have before The Freakshow brings the city to it's knees with crime?

1) No godmoding
2) No cybering
3) PG-13 cursing
4) No killing without permission from the character's creator
5) Be literate
6) If you're going to speak in OOC, do something to signify it, like double paranthesis, brakcets, etc
7) Don't discriminate anybody
8 ) Only humans with odd appearences or talents are allowed, no other races (the leader is NOT a vampire)
9) Have fun, and obey the rules!

[b]Character Templates:[/b]

Full Name:
Nickname(s): (Optional)
Occupation: (LVPD, the Freakshow, etc)

[B]((Someone needs be the leader but only ONE person can be the leader and the leader has to be a guy... sorry girls. Their can ONLY be about five people in the Freakshow group and there can ONLY be six to seven to be in the LVPD. So first come first serve.))[/B]

so there it is!

I like the idea. One question though. Only the freakshow's can have these deformalities? Or are we limited to being one of the LVPD or Freakshow, kinda thing?

Yep, the LVPD and Freakshow can have deformalities if they wish.

Hmmm, I liky! I will join if you start this!

Yep... just let me figure out how to start it... do I need approval or something before I acutally do start it?

Welcome to the forums, WitchyGhost:)

However, I don't believe you're allowed to "borrow" someone's thread premise like this. A similar premise you've come up with is alright, but borrowing like this is borderline plagiarism. Sorry!

Nope, once you get a story and some players around, post your actual RPing thread in the General Role-Playing forum.

If I was you Witchy I would get the ok form who's ever idea it was before. If they find out that you "Stole" thier idea they could get mad and say something and Im sure the rp will be taken out. So, like, yeah...
